Converting Collection to an Array

Blocking collections (IOmniBlockingCollection) are basic elements for data storage and transfer in many high-level OmniThreadLibrary abstractions. They can, however, be somewhat clumsy when you want to read data from them, as there is no indexed access, just the basic “give me next element” enumeration.

To help a bit, SVN now includes three new class functions in the TOmniBlockingCollection class – ToArray<T>, ToArrayIntf<T>, and ToArrayRec<T>.

class function ToArray<T>(coll: IOmniBlockingCollection):
class function ToArrayIntf<T: IInterface>(
IOmniBlockingCollection): TArray<T>;

class function ToArrayRec<T: record>(
IOmniBlockingCollection): TArray<T>;
